“The virus is affecting not only high school and middle school students who received a laptop for the first time this year, but also devices at the district office and elementary schools.
That’s 50 schools and more than 25,000 computers. And here’s the ironic thing about it: The Lake Washington School District comprises the cities of Kirkland and Redmond, the latter, of course, being the hometown of Microsoft. Those laptops are all running on PCs with Windows 7.”
There, you have it. The kind of thing I saw in several schools in the North of Canada running that other OS and bogging down IT to unusability. Folks there just did without until I showed them how to migrate to GNU/Linux. The folks in Washington state are hiring five IT guys to try to undo the damage. They won’t succeed. You cannot rewind the clock on everything.
I recommend Debian GNU/Linux, an OS that works for you and not for M$ and it’s malware “partners”.
